Abstract: This project develops a user-friendly, map-based, on-line Bulletin Board to broadly disseminate a diverse array of key information associated with sustainable water use in Maine. Integration of information from multiple resource types is essential for an effective ecosystem-based approach to sustainable water use. The Bulletin Board includes the following core components: (i) Interactive mapping, (ii) a user-developed "wiki" catalogue of experience-based knowledge, and (iii) an on-line geo-referenced bibliographic database. The project focuses on a set of diverse watersheds in Maine, including catchments important to Atlantic salmon. The project will involve university and agency researchers, college and high school students, and NGOs. The generic nature of the infrastructure developed by this project will ensure that this Bulletin Board can be readily extended to other watersheds in the future.
